of the august 15th cable where he was steve s said we can't stand a coordinated attack. i blame the president for making this a death trap. i blame the president for not having assets available to help these people for eight hours. we need a select committee not only to look at intelligence failures but how could the department of defense not help these poor people over eight hours. >> mike, you heard senator graham there. what's the administration's reaction to this? >> a lot of strong views. it is an issue that is not going away, especially after david petraeus, the former director of the cia testified in a closed door hearing on friday. senators, congressmen from both sides of the aisle came out. little doubt general petraeus thought almost immediately after the september 11th attacks that it resulted in the deaths of ambassador stevens and three other americans that it was terrorists involved here and it was not a spahn teenagerous event. and of course most notely a narrative was put forward by susan rice some five days after the attacks on "meet the press" and elsewhere. you heard lindse
here today. a special thank you to borough president moldanero and national and county executives steve ba loan in suffolk county. we thank them all. most of the, mr. president, we thank you and your cabinet, especially secretaries napolitano and donovan and craig fugate for their unprecedented federal presence and effort. i'd also like to thank or federal officials, senator schumer, senator gillibrand, congressman grim with us today for all the help in securing the necessary funds so that we can rebuild. 17 days ago on october 29th, everything changed for new york. 60 new yorkers lost their lives, tens of thousands saw their homes damaged or destroyed. communities from staten island to lindenpurs were decimated. 17 days ago we felt a new vulnerability for the first time. we have much to do. there is no doubt. we must provide shelter and support in the short term. we must repair thousands of homes and small businesses. we must reknit the fabric of tattered communities. we must rethink and redesign for the long term, because extreme weather as we have learned is the new normal. but we ar
of his former aides to talk to the news media, including me. i have spoken to steve boylan, his former spokesman in iraq. steve tells me general petraeus authorized him to speak to the news media. first, let's be terribly clear. general petraeus still putting out his words, his version of events through many of his former military aides. as for miss broadwell, she will have to speak her piece when she chooses to. you know, i think that it's also worth absolutely noting by all accounts as far as we know, david petraeus did not plan to resign. this relationship we have reported broke up four months ago. he knew he was under investigation. broadwell knew she was under investigation. for the last four months, at least. if not even before that. he has known all about this. he has known it and it was when he was confronted and asked about it by the director of national intelligence and apparently told he needed to tender his resignation that then this actually happened. >> so maybe a little bit of spin as well in the, he decided to do the honorable thing and step forward and resign versus yo
